Black Lives Matter demonstrators hit independent journalist over the head with an egg and a soiled diaper, calling her a 'Trump supporter' and a 'Nazi' after she won't stop filming protest in NYC's Madison Square Park

 Black Lives Matter protesters set upon a 33-year-old woman in a New York park when she wouldn't stop filming them, calling her a 'Nazi', and hitting her over the head with an egg and a dirty diaper, police said.

The woman, who said she was an independent journalist, refused to stop filming the protesters who had gathered at Madison Square Park in New York on Sunday. 

When she didn't, some members of the crowd got angry and surrounded her, accusing her of being a Donald Trump supporter and a 'fascist', a law enforcement source told DailyMail.com. 

The woman wasn't injured, police said.

Footage shows the group gathering around the unidentified woman and shoving her around before she is hit in the head by the egg.

Members of the crowd kept asking the woman who she was working for, and why she was recording, and when she identified herself as an independent journalist, they set upon her, a police source said.

In the commotion, the woman's cell phone and umbrella were knocked to the ground. 

The group chases after the woman as she attempts to flee, catching up to her.

One man sprays the woman with pink aerosol string and then another person hits her with a skateboard.
